 Crops Awarded Grant for Mobile Famer's Market

Too many Lincoln residents are not able to take advantage of the vast amounts of local produce currently available. 
Thanks to funding from the Community Health Endowment, Crops is launching a new mobile farmer's market project, called the Veggie Van, that will bring fresh, local produce every week to the new Health 360 clinic parking lot.  Centrally located, at 23rd & O Sts., clients of the clinic and surrounding neighborhoods will have easy access to fresh, healthy produce at a reduced cost.  Read more.
